Pierre Chapo 'T22' L'oeil Coffee Table - 1970s
Eye-shaped coffee table 'T22' in solid elm wood by Pierre Chapo, a beautiful composition consisting of two curved tables and a central oval piece. This table has a thick top with natural veining and six cylindrical legs. The joints visible on the edge of the table top are typical of the creations of master woodworker Pierre Chapo. Crafted to perfection and featuring admirable patina, this table is in impeccable condition and exudes a bold statement in any room.
Pierre Chapo (1927-1987) was born in a family of craftsmen and trained as an architect in Paris. After spending many years traveling through south and North America he and his partner Nicole set up Société Chapo, an architectural research consultancy and interior design firm. In 1958 they opened their famous gallery at 14 Boulevard de l'Hôpital. Chapo's work originated by means of special commissions that could later be adapted to universal needs. Chapo was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's balanced lines, Le Corbusier's research on proportions, and Bauhaus. Société Chapo was a design workshop and gallery in one where Nicole presented ceramics, textiles, and other designs by the great designers of the day. The three principles that motivated Pierre Chapo were 'material, form, and function.' He measured his furniture by means of the golden ratio and used elmwood as his preferred material.
